Snabb Switch Update on Software Gone Wild

In 2014, we did a series of podcasts on Snabb Switch (Snabb Switch and OpenStack, Deep Dive), a software-only switch delivering 10-20 Gbps of forwarded bandwidth per x86 core. In the meantime, Snabb community slowly expanded, optimized the switching code, built a number of solutions on top of the packet forwarding core, and even forked a just-in-time Lua compiler to get better performance.

To find out the details, listen to Episode 91 of Software Gone Wild in which Luke Gorrie explained how far the Snabb project has progressed in the last four years.

We migrated our blog a few days ago, and the commenting functionality is not there yet. In the meantime enjoy the older comments, or find our content on LinkedIn and comment there.

  1. Wow it's a very active community over there at Github. Maybe they'll manage to get 100 Gbps working finally. Thanks for that hint.
